Would you buy a home if it ovelooked a cemetery?
I'm not looking to buy one or anything. I'm just curious what people think about such an idea.
Depends on the cemetery, really. Is it a pretty, well-kept, and/or atmospheric cemetery, with no loitering hobos or delinquent children or colonies of evil rats from the underworld? Then, sure, why not? At least it's fairly likely that there wouldn't be any McMansions built on it any time soon, so no view or space'd be spoiled. On the other, more callous hand, I certainly wouldn't enjoy the sounds of weeping brought in on the breeze from my open windows. Hmm, so really I'm only okay with an nice old cemetery that isn't much used and couldn't be a future plot point in a Stephen King novel. Fine, so I'd only do it if it was a cottage by a quaint, interesting little church cemetery in Scotland or Provence. So, you know, never.read more collapse
@benyust2: When I was a teen I was watching my four brothers and sisters after school one day when there was a knock at the door. I answered it and there were two guys in suits and dark glasses. One showed me his badge and said "FBI." I slammed the door shut in his face without a word and called my mom. She told me to put him on the phone, so I opened the door again and they were still there, looking a little nonplussed. It turned out there had been a murder in our home before we moved in, and the trial was finally about to begin and the agents wanted to walk the "crime scene" to refresh their memories before testifying. So here are these two very stolid FBI agents being followed by a trail of five kids ranging from 2-17 being asked a million questions about who died here? how did they die? did they die in my room? was there a shootout? was there a lot of blood and guts? etc. It was pretty hilarious.read more collapse
